Herbal Goddess (Storey Publishing, 2015) is herbalist and yoga teacher Amy Jirsa’s guide to the restorative powers of herbs, including recipes and ideas for healing teas, nourishing foods, and beauty and health treatments.

There’s not much that’s more healing or detoxifying than a good clay mask. It’s super-easy to create your own, and you can use pretty much any flower if you like. This recipe is definitely not set in stone — you have to experiment and do a little trial and error. But once you have adjusted the recipe to your satisfaction, make sure you write down your ingredients and ratios. Make a huge batch and fill a bunch of jars — this stuff has a really long shelf life. You can give some away as gifts as well!
